These past two weeks have been a whirlwind. We've accepted and processed the first pilot group of students into our Disruption Fellowship program. I met with the families, outlined the project, and dropped off the laptops and 4G internet cards. At first blush, most of the students are interested in Software Design, Multimedia Production, Entrepreneurship and Computer Repair/Hardware Engineering. We expect these interests to change following more exposure to projects at hackdays. Students will work building skills in coding over the next month leading up to our first hackday on February 1.
The fellows for 2013 are:
- Breshawn - Software Design
- Deon - Software Design
- Antonio - Software Design, Multimedia Production
- Courtney - Entrepreneurship
- Dion - Computer Repair/Engineering
- James - Multimedia Production
We'll be posting updates on the project as updates. If you want to help fund the Fellowship Program, you can go to fundly and give a donation. Any little bit helps!
